Setting

Mineral-rich Milos

Set on a Sarakiniko-rivalling shoreline in Milos, White Coast Pool Suites has twigged the ultimate Cycladic secret: all pads must have plunge pools. Those who like to spend as much time of a holiday submerged in water as possible will love it here: along with the pool in every suite, there’s another along the shoreline and the beach is moments away. The island has Venetian fortresses, colourful fishing villages, isolated beaches and a dreamscape for geologists – but be sure to hurry back for sunsets and Mediterranean meals on the Bianco terrace.

Our favourite rooms

For the Nirvana-baby money shot, request a room that has a glass-walled pool and do your best to recreate the Nevermind album cover. Or for a bed with amazing Aegean views thanks to the second-floor setting, book a Superior Suite with Chill Out Pool & Panoramic Sea View (the name isn’t lying).

Poolside

As the name has probably given away, each room has its own pool – but you can also cool off in the communal one between 10am and 7pm each day.

Packing tips

It’s unlikely you’re going to be spending much time out of a swimsuit, so be sure to bring an array of options (human-size scallop shell, optional).

Top Table

There’s no bad spot on this terrace, but, for the prime sunset perch, try to secure one of the tables closest to the main pool.

Dress Code

I’m your Venus.

Hotel restaurant

The terrace at Bianco spreads out right to the edge of the water, with neighbouring islands and rock formations visible on the horizon. The Mediterranean menu includes classic Greek dishes such as giouvetsi, a beef stew with orzo, elevated with prawn broth and fennel oil, and roast pork with peaches and grape molasses. At breakfast, guests can choose from Greek and American favourites.

Hotel bar

At Bianco’s bar, go local with Greek soft drinks, beers and wines.

Address
White Coast Pool Suites
Mytakas
Milos
848 00
Greece

Milos is the southwesternmost Cycladic isle in the Aegean and the hotel is on its northeasterly shores, close to Sarakiniko and a short walk from Mytakas Beach.

Planes

The airport on Milos is only served by domestic flights from Athens, so you’ll have to connect there – or be sensible and arrive by sea from one of the neighbouring islands. If you have jetted in, the hotel is a 10-minute drive from the airport. Hotel transfers can be arranged on request.

Automobiles

A car (and let’s be real: boat) will definitely come in handy for exploring Milos’s fortress towns, fishing villages and quiet coves. The hotel has a car park.

Other

Ferries drop anchor in Milos’s Adamas port from Piraeus in Athens and other islands, including Paros, Folegandros and Santorini. The hotel has a helipad for incoming choppers.

Worth getting out of bed for

Your private pool-enhanced pad may be doing its best to tempt you to stay on your terrace, but Milos has much to coax you out – including trips to lunar landscapes (Sarakiniko), fishing villages (Pollonia and Klima), Venetian forts (Plaka) and swims in sea caves (Papafragas). Enlist the help of Excellent Yachting’s Captain Mike to take you to beaches that can only be reached from the water (or a precarious cliff-edge ladder) and to the island’s geologist-pleasing rock formations, including the bright white caves and rocks of Kleftiko. A boat trip is also the best way to see the neighbouring Polyegos (literally: ‘many goats’), the largest uninhabited island in the Med (what it lacks in humans, it makes up for in sure-footed wild mammals). Closer to home, the sandy shores of Mytakas Beach are a five-minute walk from your suite. 

Local restaurants

Technically on the other side of the island, but more than worth the seven-minute drive for its use of exclamation marks alone, O! Hamos! is one of the most traditional tavernas on Milos (with a handwritten menu in every possible language). Also in Adamas, Mikros Apoplous has a prime perch on the edge of the water and a seafood-heavy menu to match the setting. A short drive east, the town of Pollonia also has lots of excellent seafood restaurants, including Armenaki and Yialos.

Local bars

The hilltop-fortress town of Plaka is the place to be for sunset – especially with a cocktail courtesy of the obliging bar staff at Verina or Utopia.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this all-suite hotel in the Cyclades and unpacked their bikinis and boat shoes, a full account of their beach break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside White Coast Pool Suites in Milos…

Santorini may get all of the Cycladic sunset attention, but Helios doesn’t like to discriminate – they’re actually pretty spectacular on Milos, too. This is especially good news if you’ve booked a room at west-facing White Coast Pool Suites, aka a front-row seat to sunset (and your own pool to enjoy it in). The hotel’s expansive terrace is also a prime sundowner spot, as is a sunlounger by the sea-edge main pool. Milos – hitherto most famous for the discovery of the namesake statue of Venus – has much to please the average geologist, including caves, minerals and volcanic sand, but its most startling landscape is the moon-matching Sarakiniko – a miniature version of which can be found right here on White Coast’s shoreline. As if you didn’t have enough swimming options (including pretending to be the Nirvana baby in your private glass-walled pool), the sandy beach of Mytakas is steps from your suite. All that’s missing is your scallop shell.
